Not gonna lie, it’s convenient to be able to click on a 30 minute video of a pre-made playlist containing all the hip and trendy 6 second ADHD-clips, so as to avoid the hassle of exploring yourself to find funny videos, but if we want to be taken seriously as a content creation alternative to YouTube, then we can’t let YouTube channels, and by extension, YouTube, take advantage of the work we will make, and make money off of them.
Imo, we need to take two steps in order to prevent essentially creative theft. The first step, which was already suggested by @SelenaGomez, is a method that V2 can use to create automatic, streamed (not a video with a set time) compilations of popular v2 vids, thus making more vids more easily accessible, and able to be filtered by topic or genre.
The second step we have to take is a somewhat offensive strategy against compilation channels. They will be naturally eager to continue doing what made them so popular before, once V2 is released and popular enough. Somehow, V2 would need to make it impossible for such compilations to be made on YouTube, or at least impossible to be made at such an extant as they were before, either through the technicalities of V2 videos, some type of legal option, or something else (you’re welcome to comment suggestions).
Speaking of commenting, leave ideas below if you have anything else to suggest that could optimize V2 in terms of making it a relevant and realistic platform for artists. Have a good one.
